Take care of your fibroids
Uterine fibroid embolization is a simple, outpatient procedure that takes about 90-minutes in the doctor’s office.
A tiny tube called a catheter is advanced from either the artery in your wrist or groin to the arteries feeding the fibroids.
The arteries supplying the fibroids are blocked by tiny beads, the catheter is then removed from the body, and a band-aid is applied.
1-2 hours after the procedure, you go home. Over the next 2-4 weeks, the fibroids will significantly shrink in size. Maximum symptom relief is achieved at 3 months.
